josh, yes there is an option to use for kids bikes where you don't have to take off the wheel. That is the reason i went with this option as i still get full use of my bed and it is covered for weather.

Do you have a list of parts or part #'s you used or are needed?
Thanks

I recently installed a 2x2 receiver under the front bumper of my Ram, and slid in a Swagman bike rack. I can just see the handlebars above the hood. Nothing interferes with my view of the road or the headlights although fog lights are slightly blocked. The system is very solid. The receiver was about $200 although lighter ones are available for less money. With the bikes removed, the rack can't be seen from the cab, so need to remember it's there when pulling into the garage. If I'm on the road and suddenly the handlebars disappear, no need to go back to get the bike. It's flattened.

I also carry my bikes over the bed of the truck:

All of the bike rack gear was left over from past applications, so nothing to buy other than some metal pieces to attach the rack system to my TrackRac rails. I also have a TracRac tonneau cover, which I can roll up all of the way if I need to get in the truck bed.

I don't think my rack system is gonna work when I get a 5th wheel.

The OP asked about bike rack for a TT, so one for a popup roof won't work.

I mounted fork mounts to the UNDER SIDE of the dinette boards. When we travel I flip the board over and mount the fork to the fork mount. When we arrive I wheel the bikes out and lock them to the back bumper and flip the dinette boards over. Invisible until I need it. Fork mounts are about 20.00 each. I have two mounted but easily have room for 4 or more. Have the bikes with you when you mount the fork mounts so you can space everything properly.

I used these for our mountain bikes: http://static.jensonusa.com/images/D...8/RA242Z00.jpg

These work for road bikes, and you can use an adaptor with them if you have 15mm or 25mm thru-axle MTBs:http://www.amazon.com/Sunlite-Bicycl.../dp/B000AO7GRG
